Re: Nude Reference Photos
Try googling domai.com. This is an Internet site that specialises in non-pornographic nudes (all female). Generally, the poses are not what you see in a figure drawing class. The models tend to be smiling cheerfully into the camera as though for their class photos. There are, however, a minority of stunning photos and beautiful poses with interesting lighting. Good material for the anatomy and you can improve the poses and backgrounds yourself. There is limited free access. About twenty dollars gets you access to a mind-boggling number of photos that is a little overwhelming to wade through but there is some very good inspirational material there. Some of the best photos you may recognise as the reference material for paintings you have already seen.
Any C&C I may make is based on the theory that even the act of disagreeing with one of my lousy suggestions may still spark an inspired idea.
